Winter storm kills at least 9 in sweep across US Midwest, Northeast

January 03, 2014 - 6:16 AM

BOSTON - A winter storm has led to at least nine deaths as it sweeps across the eastern half of the U.S.

Slick roads have caused traffic deaths in Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.

A massive pile of salt fell on a worker at a Philadelphia storage facility, killing him.

And authorities say a woman with Alzheimer's disease froze to death after she wandered away from her rural New York home.

The snowstorm temporarily shut down major highways in New York and Pennsylvania and forced airlines to cancel thousands of flights.
